Two more Elkhart elementary schools will have new principals this fall. 

Gary Gardner was approved as principal for Osolo and JeNeva Adams as principal for Mary Beck at a school board meeting Tuesday, July 22. 

Gardner has been working for the district for 15 years, most recently as assistant principal at Osolo. 

He said his goals for the school include increasing parental involvement and raising student reading scores. 

Adams has worked for Elkhart Community Schools for six years and will be coming from an assistant principal position at Elkhart Memorial. 

She was not present at Tuesday’s school board meeting because she is in Chile on a missions trip working with children.
